History of Papa Napoli Italian Deli

slide One of the very last Mom & Pop restaurants around – serving delicious homemade Italian food that will truly tantalize your taste buds and satisfy the heartiest of appetites.

The Napoli Family has proudly served our friends and customers in Santa Maria since 1982...with all of Papa Napoli’s five children working in the Deli throughout the years...along with Papa’s widow, Donna and, of course, his mother...Jennie, helping the family into her nineties!

The family tradition continues with the youngest son, Mario and his wife, Virginia now operating and managing Papa Napoli Italian Deli. Mario was six years old when the Deli first opened so he has literally grown up in the restaurant. Since Mario and Virginia are the proud parents of Antonio Gerald, born May 2006 - we are hopeful this next generation has secured the future of the Napoli family business.

Whether you’re dining in our warm, friendly atmosphere or taking your order to go, we’re going to make your Italian dining experience just too good to refuse. Come see us soon – ciao!
